There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

WIOA Partners: USDA Debuts SNAP E&T Review with Policy Updates, Information on Demand-Driven Practices
Apr 30, 2016

An April 28 advisory from Jessica Shahin, Associate Administrator, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Food and Nutrition Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture

I am pleased to announce an exciting new offering from the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) that will enhance communication about the SNAP Employment and Training Program (SNAP E&T) to States and their stakeholders all across the country.

Today, we're launching the SNAP E&T Review, the first-ever SNAP E&T newsletter that will connect you to national program and policy updates related to SNAP E&T. SNAP E&T Review will feature the latest news about SNAP E&T, information about how to design job-driven SNAP E&T programs, and emerging best practices.

One of FNS' top priorities is working with States to build SNAP E&T programs that can provide SNAP recipients the skills and experience they need to find better jobs and reduce their need for SNAP. We are committed to improving SNAP E&T programs nationally and will be rolling out resources (such as this newsletter) and tools to help your agency incorporate job-driven elements into your E&T programs.

Over the next year, you can expect a continuum of resources featured in the Review, including new publications, workbooks, a new digital platform, webinars, and success stories from SNAP E&T participants. These resources are being made available to all States and their partners interested in learning about and growing high quality SNAP E&T programs.

Please join us in this exciting effort by subscribing to the SNAP E&T Review.
